Knitting Everyday Finery
The word "finery" is often associated with jewels, silk, and lace. Hip knitwear designer Mel Clark says it means something else to her, something infinitely more practical and more accessible: clothes or accessories that you can wear or use every day, even though they are packed with enough "wow factor" to grab the eyes of others—and inspire their envy! You'll feel and look fabulous when you don one of Mel's designs, just like you do when you "dress your best."
Projects in this easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructional book include much of "what's hot" and even "what could be" in the seasons to come. There's a little something for everyone—from the ever useful giant cowl to a "heroine hood" and "strawberry beret"; from cuffs and mitts to short-shorts and tangerine-colored tights; from purses and totes to shawls and slippers. With sections dedicated to going out, dressing up, and staying home, knitters are certain to find each of these projects a joy to make and immensely satisfying to keep or give.
